I decided to support a local business rather than order my silver supplies online. I went in excited to get supplies and learn a new craft - but wow - the staff is so rude and condescending. The clerk literally turned her head and laughed when I asked a question about polishing silver. I quickly paid and left. I won't return. So sad that a local business can't treat their customers with respect, much less show appreciation for their business.
